According to Doug Abel, CEO of AAT, "China's aesthetics market is growing faster than the global market. The size of the Chinese population and relatively low market penetration of aesthetics and filler treatments in China present enormous potential for future growth. Our novel Algeness® range of dermal fillers is the first 100% natural, biocompatible and fully biodegradable filler on the market to date, which differentiates it from other injectable products. We are very pleased to commence the pursuit of registration in China through our strategic partner, Lanzhou Biotechnique Development Co., LTD (LanDev) and their parent company China National Biotec Group Co., LTD (CNBG)."

From 2015 to 2019, the global aesthetic medicine market grew steadily, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of around 8.2%. China market grew from RMB 64.8 billion in 2015 to RMB 176.9 billion in 2019 – an impressive 28.7% CAGR. The domestic market is poised to grow at a 15.2% CAGR between 2020 and 2023 (versus 7% globally), following a period of adjustment.1

Wu Qiang, General Manager of Lanzhou Biotechnique Development Co. Ltd commented, "We are proud to work with the AAT team to bring this revolutionary injectable product to the Chinese market. We believe the distinct advantages and high safety profile of the Algeness® gel filler will resonate with aesthetic physicians and introduces a new category of biodegradable products to our growing portfolio."
